I’ve just updated a couple of my old personal project websites.

  • Twitter Sucks! - Upgraded all Ruby gems and got it working again. Updated CSS and picked newer fonts from Google Fonts.
  • Flittr = Flickr + Twitter - Upgraded three major versions of Rails and got it (almost) working again. Switched from the fleakr gem to the flickr gem. Right now, every tweet falls back to a lolcats image because the Yahoo! Term Extraction API no longer exists.

Both applications are currently running on Heroku’s free tier. Once I get them modernized enough I may move them to the “Hobby” tier. I also upgraded both from their ancient Cedar-10 stack.
